Herbie Hancock And Foday Musa Suso - Village Life (CD, Album, RE). Sony. referencing Village Life, LP, Album, FC 39870. Unfortunatly Mister Hancock uses boring cheap and dated synth. and drum-machine sounds instead of the planned acoustic piano. This could had been a real classic jazz and world music album, it's a pity! Reply See 1 reply Notify me Helpful.

Discography: Foday Musa Suso. The Dreamtime (1978).
It's hard not to feel good and just a bit lighter and possibly even enlightened when you hear this album. Foday Musa Suso plays the Kora, an African instrument that sounds like a cross between an acoustic guitar and a harp. The melodies he plays are generally in a major key and almost always positive sounding, but never glib or shallow. The almost hypnotic repeating phrases he plays have some similarities to the subtle finger picking style of Missippii John Hurt, as well as traditional harp music from around the world.
The results are absolutely mesmerizing, with Herbie aligning himself perfectly within Suso's unusual, complex rhythmic conceptions and folk-like harmonies. On the 20-minute "Kanatente," Hancock does introduce some of his own advanced harmonic ideas, and he contrasts and interweaves them with Suso's deceptively simple lines in a splendid jam session that eventually ends in a dance that can only be described as Gambian funk
